In class we learned about the visual effect called a parallax, where close objects appear to move slower when running past them compared to objects that a farther. Besides this being an interesting effect on our vision, this effect helps sciences in space determine the distance between stars!

Through the use of complex mathematics and trig, the distance between every moving object can be found
